Mr. Müller sings the part of the Evangelist…from memory. Actually he does not so much sing the role as inhabit it. Even when he is not singing he is a participant, closely observing others and offering subtle commentary through facial expressions, registering irony, for example, with a twist of the lip but without mugging….He had a worthy foil in the strong Jesus of Douglas Williams, who also sang from memory.
